UIL administrators reported Monday that 15 bench-clearing brawls occurred at high school basketball games last season. “We’ve never had such a rash of bench-clearing brawls like this,” UIL executive director Charles Breithaupt said, “and a few fans entered the fray — which really frightened us.” Punishments for most of the fights were handled at the district executive committee level, one rung below the UIL state executive committee. “The local DECs did a good job,” Breithaupt said.
The 85th annual Texas High School Coaches Association Convention kicked off Sunday with a lecture about character development from former NFL players Jon Kitna and Herschel Walker. Kitna started his high school coaching career at his alma mater, Lincoln High in Tacoma, Wash., but now the former NFL quarterback is in his third season at Waxahachie.
High school footballers play for Friday nights, some for college and beyond. Few dream of immortality. Members of the 1962 and ’63 Fort Worth Kirkpatrick football achieved legacy status Saturday as 2017 inductees to the Prairie View Interscholastic League Coaches Association Hall of Fame. In the days of public-school segregation, the PVIL and UIL ran their own athletic organizations.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
